A Message from United Way of King County CEO – Jon Fine
United Way of King County is all about bringing people together to build a strong community. That means everyone. We deeply value diversity, inclusiveness and equity because these are what make a vibrant community. That is why for years we have worked with local nonprofits, donors, and our city, county and state governments to support refugees and immigrants.
We believe that each of us has a role to play in building a vibrant, and healthy community. Indeed, Seattle and King County welcomes 3,000 new arrivals each year, and there are more than 129 languages spoken in our schools. Welcoming new neighbors with open arms is a key component to the success of our region. We all benefit when this happens. We encourage everyone to get involved and stand up for justice and the most vulnerable among us.
We live united against the outright exclusion of specific populations and we live united for inclusion.
Volunteer to help refugees, immigrants and communities of color.
